Excitement runs high for the first two rounds of the NFL draft as college football's best and brightest learn which NFL team made their dreams a reality.
After the 64th pick, however, fan excitement dies down and the real dirty work begins. That's when the league's best general managers, like the Green Bay Packers' Ted Thompson, try to find a diamond in the rough. The Packers have found much depth in the draft that has enabled them to fight off the injury bug two of the last three years.
Everyone focuses on the first two rounds, but it is in the middle and especially the later rounds where the "meat and potatoes" of an NFL roster are found. Some of the players selected late go on to be career backups while others buck the odds and go on to be all-time greats.
Packers fans are familiar with the story of Donald Driver, who was a seventh-round draft pick in 1999. Could Green Bay strike gold again in the later rounds of the 2013 draft?
Here are five potential late-round selections that would fit perfectly with the Packers.
